I'm new at blogging. Just wanted to share what I found to help me figure out yardage for my current quilt that will actually be a quilted duvet cover. I needed help as it has been a while since I did a quilt. This web site has a cool calculator if you have the other information it will help speed things for you. My past experience was just guest a mate yardage. I always bought more than I needed to cover base. Now retired and trying to keep a handle on money. Ha

I echo quilted 5 rows around the outer flowers for the border.

The quilting on this is beyond spectacular!

This is a scrappy top that will measure about 40” x 54” – you decide if you want to make more blocks to make it bigger, or add borders of your choice. You can make a queen or king sized quilts by making four or ix times the number of blocks. Clue one is today, Feb. 7th and clue 3, last clue, will be on Feb. 21ast. This is just a quickie to try and clean out some scraps.
If you are leery of scrappy quilts, I do

I did limited quilting, just some stitch in the ditch for the colored triangles using red SoFine thread with silver metallic Yenmet thread in thenhalf-circles and the piano key border. Too bad the pictures don't show

The is the pixelated heart pattern. I found it on Pinterest. Very simple. I made it with 2 1/2" squares. It measures 23 1/2 x 25 1/2".
The next one is just a simple DP9. I love DP9's. It's great for bigger prints. And I had an adorable Woodland
